Amazon messed up and gave Fitbit’s new smartwatch a bigger discount than it was supposed to

BGR — Maren Estrada

Amazon is running a sale right now titled “Save up to $40 on Fitbit Products,” which is awesome because $40 is a lot of money to save on fitness trackers and smartwatches that are already priced so reasonably. But do you know what’s even better than a sale that saves you up to $40? A sale where someone screwed up and gave the wildly popular Fitbit Versa 2 smartwatch a $50 discount instead of a $40 discount! This mistake has been live on Amazon for a while now, so someone is bound to catch on soon. Also of note if you just want activity tracking, you can get other Fitbit bands right now starting at $59.95.
